The Second year “Earth Politics” photography class, engaged in a number of mini field trips this week with their lecturer Vanessa Cowling, assisted by Jasmin Valcarcel and Sitaara Stodel, our photographic technician. The second years went to the Company Gardens where they looked for (and picked up) litter, they visited the IZIKO South African Natural History Museum and they did a series of photographic exercises on the beach at Three Anchor Bay. The photographic exercises included an ambient light and flash demonstration. Students then collected trash which they will use as inspiration or in constructive form for their project. As a demonstration students also made a site specific artwork with rubbish found on the beach.
